Hi Jan, what a beautiful looking beverage. Any kind of cold drink is what I miss most on this no carb, no sugar diet. I gave up diet soft drinks because I'm afraid of the sweeteners and caramel coloring the beverage companies use. This might be a good drink even without the alcohol. I use stevia to sweeten and am not as afraid of that. I've been offline for a while so hope everything is good with you and you are enjoying your summer.
